Sailing is labor intensive, it's not a practical way to get from point a to b, it can be thrilling but often it's not, it's not much of a spectator sport except at the ac level. These days people are accustomed to getting their thrills with more noise, more speed, less work, and less effort needed to be good at it. Sailing only appeals to people who truly love the idea of using the wind, their wits and a good boat to go where they want to go, whether it's racing or cruising. That's never going to appeal to the masses. I think it would be great to "grow the sport", but whether theres 5 or 50 boats on the line doesn't make that much difference to me. I just like sailing and if everyone else wants to go play grand theft auto instead..that's cool, I guess. I can understand why people in the industry want to grow the sport, but I don't think it's ever going be a big market.
